Black women dating outside their race
You said that some of those Black women------were driven away by Black men But when the question was asked are Black women driving brothers away, sisters said NO 1. They said that Black women didn't drive those brothers, to date outside their race 3. I've heard/read some of the most crueliest and harsh things said about black women from black men all to appease non black women. And don't get mad when you see a sista strutten down the street with her non black husband/boyfriend either.Unfortunately, that wasn’t the first or last awkward date I’ve had with a white man.
White men have the privilege of not having to actively think about their intersections of race and gender, which is starkly different from black women’s realities.”Against my better judgment, I assumed that the wingman just wasn’t very good at his job and started talking to his friend anyway.We ended up hitting it off, but it wasn’t until our first date that I realized I had underestimated the wingman’s abilities.White men navigate society with relative ease while black women are teetering on the precarious margins of race and gender that they do not have the privilege to ignore.
This is not a game to us, nor is it something we can ignore.This won’t apply to every black woman, but it wouldn’t hurt to infuse some intersectional feminism into your game.
